#unpopularopinion

Actually, I knew this was no book for me. But what all does one read for a challenge? I was surprised, finding out that I liked the beginning of the book. Their childhood friendship was interesting and fascinating to read.

But then puberty hits again, and there I was dragging myself through a book that didn't catch me the slightest. I don't care about Lenu, her school, her lovelife. I care even less for her brilliant friend ⬇

Jari-chan The story repeats itself constantly. Sometimes the names changes, but the story keeps the same.
I also missed the feeling for the city and the time setting. The whole book could be set at any place in the world, at any given time after WWII.

So, no, no book for me. Series won't be continued, and please, please keep Elena Ferrante far away from me. Thank you.

This book collects three short stories from Irelands Dread Nation universe. If you're a fan of the series you shouldn't miss out on those. We get to know the characters better, get a deeper insight in to their past and the world they live in.
Sadly, the book is over way to fast. I had to real really slowly, to enjoy the whole thing a bit longer 😄

Another recipe for the #FoodandLit challenge that doesn't look as tasty as it is 😅🙈 For our journey to #Afghanistan I made Borani Badejan - Roasted Eggplant.

When I came along this dish I just knew I had to make it. I love eggplants ❤️ If you do as well this might be an idea for you.

Oh, that smell when I lifted the lid of the pan when it was done - pure joy! 🤩

Here are my books for #bookspin and #doublespin (not tagged book, but related 😉) I'm glad to finally getting down to read the DN stories by Ireland.

The second book has just won the SERAPH prize for best debut. Ordered it yesterday and hopefully can start with it today already. I'm so curious about this one. Funny enough I just added it to this new list and it already has been chosen - a sign, maybe ?😁

Mehso-so

As much as I loved The Pearl That Broke Its Shell, as much I struggled with this one. Maybe it was the narrator of the audio book because I didn't like her way of reading either. I was very disappointed and sad, when I realized I couldn't get into the story at all. The characters, while lovingly drawn out, still couldn't reach me. The plot didn't catch me at all, even though it would've been an interesting and important topic. But I don't feel ⬇

Jari-chan like I've learned anything about the revolution in Afghanistan. There's no real background information. So if you want to know more about the history of this country, you'll be disappointed. Just like me. Instead, there's a lot of drama, small town politics, more drama, and... more drama...

Not sure if I shall read more by Hashimi or not...

I just managed to finish my #Roll100 book for April, now I'm already ordering the one for May - incredible! 😄 Number 85 is Bradburys “Something Wicked This Way Comes“. An October book in May - what a match! 😄

For #TurnUpTheBooks I got Blink-182s “I Really Wish I Hated You“. Just a normal, boring breakup song 🙄 First I thought I wouldn't find a fitting book, but when I scrolled through my planned reading list ⬇

Jari-chan I came along Elena Ferrantes “My Brilliant Friend“ and thought it fitting, since their friendship seems to be some sort of love-hate friendship. We'll see in time.

Soft pick for me. I was happy to meet the familiar characters again, but wished we'd stayed more with them. The plot was interesting, but didn't catch my attention the whole time. All in all it's a good, but not outstanding book, even though Thrawn would be such an impressive character...

A collection of different poems by different authors from Cuba. The texts give a good overview over the topics the people think and write about. We read about life as an exile, the country, nature, love and dance. Sadly, some political ones weren't allowed to be printed...

Part two of the duology and my #bookspin for April. The second book is definitely better than the first one, even though volume two often reminded me of Brave New World. But Oldach always manged it well to not let it come this far. The character development is strong and the story has more depth, which I enjoyed a lot. I even managed to deal with the romantic scenes 😄

Beowulf: A New Translation | Maria Dahvana Headley

This was my #Doublespin for April, and I guess I would've put this book off without the challenge by @TheAromaOfBooks 😅 But now I'm glad I read it. It was my first real encounter with Beowulf and I'm more than happy to finally know his whole story. This translation is a mix of tradition, modernity and feminismn - quite interesting and good to read. I liked the flow the verses had. But the modern words sometimes sounded a bit wrong for this text.

Bookish Song Nr. 35: The Last Of The Real Ones

Yes, another Gaunt song. But it's just too perfect not mention. It's their whole story packed into a song. The whole relationship between Gaunt and his Ghosts. Their past. The way they've come.

Where will they go? I do hope they'll find a new home for themselves.

My choice for #TurnUpTheBooks was short, but a great read nonetheless. I'm so glad I picked this story, because as the other short stories by Meyer do as well, it deepens the characters and the world-building. Also, it's simply nice to meet with the beloved friends again. If you're a fan of the series don't miss out on Meyers stories!

Star Wars: Victorys Price | Alexander Freed
post image
Mehso-so

This is only a So-So for me. I actually like the characters, but Reeds way of writing just isn't for me, it seems. Even though there's a lot of typical Star wars action, I never got into the story. Never felt involved. The pace always stays somewhat the same, which made the book sort of a bore to me... There were some scenes I felt a little emotional, but those sadly couldn't save the book for me...

BookwormAHN Oh well, series completed though. And Freed is not my favorite Star Wars author either. 2mo

Finally the second book has been translated to German as well! I've been waiting for so long, but it sure was worth it. Since we're now familiar with the characters and the setting, we're getting right into the story. Yes, one must've read book one first. If you did and enjoyed it, go ahead - I thought the second book was even better than the first one. And it's waiting for part three... Publishing date: 2023 😢

Early in the book the author states that he wants to stay as close to reality as possible, even though telling a fictional story. And that he does. There's a lot of information, especially in the first part. The second part focusses more on the characters and their backgrounds, which makes a good mixture. All in all this book is more for readers who are interested in ships and the sea, especially in the historical context. So yes, a pick for me

It's not a bad idea to read a book by Amos Oz every now and then. So I was quite content with this book, even though it dragged a little at the end. As always, the author talks about important topics and digs deep into them. He makes his readers thinking by themselves. And even though Oz' books mostly revolve around the same topics, he manages it to present them in another way in every book. Yes, it's good to read Amos Oz from time to time.

Stella Bettermann is half-Greek, half-German. In this book she tells us about her Greek family, holidays in #Greece, family members visiting in Germany and many other stories revolving around her and her family. This way I got a good glimpse at the Greek heart and soul, but also got to know about their culture and their way of living and thinking. A perfect book to take along when going on holidays in Greece.

I didn't expect much of this book, I only read it because it is part one of my 2022 challenges. But Rosoff surprised me. I soon couldn't wait to continue reading, even though the author adds a bit too many topics into the book. Therefore, she can't really get deep enough into each single one. But reading this story right now just fits. The writing style is a silent, slow one, thoughtful, kind. One to slowly catch you and drag you into the story.

If anyone can do fairy tale retellings, the it's Marissa Meyer. I don't even mind the romance in her books. Me! This one is dark and scary, uncanny. No Happily Ever After to be found in this story. And that's one of the strong sides of this book: so much atmosphere. I could dive into the story and didn't want to come back to earth again. The ending was a little bit disappointing, even for a book in a series. But now I can look forward to part two.

The book was just a tiny bit too long, to be a great one. Great descriptions of the city, interesting twists, but a bit too many characters, and the end... well, it's not an end. More like Abnett ran out of time to finish the story... Even for a series the end comes to abruptly. But all in all it was a good and entertaining read, there was always something going on and I hardly guessed what would happen next.

This was just an OK book for me. Sadly. Maybe it's because I was expecting something differently. It took for me too long until the story really started. Or maybe it was because I didn't really like the narrator of the audio book. But I never really got into the story, and the characters never came close to me. Even though bad things are happening, I stayed untouched. Therefore, I'm not going to actively continue this trilogy.
